Hi,

For testing i need a machine which is in the Domain but has a local group policy.Overiding the Domain policy.

What i want is to set the complexity of password in the local machine to high.Where as my Domain policy has no complexity of password.

Is there a way i can set this in the local machine and the Domain GP does not overide.

Regards
Sharath

Create a new policy which applies only to that computer, either by putting it in a different OU or using the apply policy with just that computer name listed.  In this policy set it the reverse of the other settings (i.e. disabled in instead of enabled, not "not configured".  Turn on loopback processing as above.

Now all users logging onto that box should get the user settings from the policy that applies to the computer

Is there any way to do it from the client without any changes on the server.
